"Dear Mr President" Video Review

"Dear Mr. President" is a song by Pink featuring the Indigo Girls. It is found on Pink's fourth album, I'm Not Dead (2006). She stated that it will never be released as a single in the United States because it will lose its meaning and impact if radio stations overplay it.

In Belgium an acoustic version of the song was released as a downloadable single in late 2006. The single was recorded at a showcase for Q-music, a Belgian radiostation. It held the number one-spot on the Ultratop 50 Chart for four weeks and charted at number 145 on the Eurochart Hot 100 Singles.

In February 2007 Pink's official UK website reported that "Dear Mr. President" and "Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely)" would be released as a download single in the UK.

When I'm Not Dead was released on April 4, 2006, the song "Dear Mr. President" attracted considerable attention. Most of the discussion concerned Pink's statement that the song was intended for United States President George W. Bush. The song's format is a series of rhetorical questions for the President; specifically pertaining to how he really feels about controversial issues such as war ("Let me tell you about hard work/Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away"), homosexuality ("What kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay?"), the homeless ("What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street"), and drug abuse, and asks "when you look in the mirror are you proud?".

In an interview with MTV News Pink stated she hopes George W. Bush hears the song and that "[he] is proud of the fact that we live in a country where we can do things like that, where we can have dissent, talk, communicate and share our opinions."

After her loss in the Georgia 4th District Democratic primary on August 8, 2006, Cynthia McKinney played the song to her supporters in lieu of a true concession speech and attempted to sing along.
